Wisconsin-Milwaukee over Alabama
Boston College over Penn
LSU over UAB
Arizona over Utah State
St. Mary's over S. Illinois

Albuquerque Regional Champion - Illinois
George takes the safe route here in the Chicago regional as Illinois plays St. Mary's on the mouse organ in the regional finals.
In completely unrelated news, I remember having one of these (Schlitz, i think) when I was a kid. Could you imagine the shitstorm that would erupt if you put mini beer can jewelry in kiddie vending machines today?
In mostly unrelated news, I found this while looking for a mouse organ link to put above. Anybody got a color laser printer and some card stock???
Up next (eventually) is the Austin region.
